What makes a good adoptive parent
Anglicare’s Local Adoption program supports birth parents who make the difficult decision to place their child for adoption.
Anglicare Sydney also works to support the adoption of foster children by their authorised carers.
Children benefit from caregivers who can be understanding and empathetic; provide a warm and playful home environment; show openness and flexibility and demonstrate understanding and respect for the child’s family and personal story.
Anglicare embraces open adoption practices ensuring children are raised knowing that they are adopted and connected to their birth family. The team assesses and trains couples to ensure they can independently parent a child without ongoing case work support from Anglicare.
